With Benedikt Fahrnschon (Curator, Kunsthalle Bielefeld), Prof. Dr. Antje Flüchter (University of Bielefeld, SFB 1288 “Practices of Comparison”), Dr. Britta Hochkirchen (Friedrich Schiller University Jena, SFB 1288 “Practices of Comparison”), Tanja-Bianca Schmidt (Technical University Dresden).

In exhibitions, artworks are often presented in comparative constellations. In some circumstances, however, comparing images can promote racist and racializing readings that would not occur in a different context or when viewing a work in isolation. As part of the exhibition series “facing each other,” the panelists discuss the possibilities and dangers of curated comparative constellations as well as the question of what a critique of racism can look like in exhibitions.

Danceperformance with Noriko Nishidate (Tanz Theater Braunschweig) and Carla Bonsoms i Barra (TANZ Bielefeld)

The expressive, the gesture and the inclusion of the whole body become part of the process of creating a work of art in gestural abstraction. Many of the artists were inspired by dance and performative arts. A dance performance developed especially for the exhibition brings this combination of gesture, movement and action to life in the rooms of the Kunsthalle.

The event is already fully booked.

The event is sponsored by Sparkasse Bielefeld.

We begin the evening with speeches by Dr. Dagmar Nowitzki (board member) and Konrad Delius (board member of the Förderkreis Kunsthalle Bielefeld), an introduction by the curator Dr. Henrike Mund and our director Christina Végh.
We will then explore our new exhibition. We look forward to the interesting and inspiring conversations with you.

Hannelore Fischer was Director of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Cologne from 1990 to 2022. With her knowledge from decades of research and exhibitions, she will give us a special insight into the artist’s life and working methods and look at Kollwitz’ work in the field of tension between art and politics.
